Article title

We invite you to visit our cosy library.

Themunicipal library in Ratibor is located in the "old rectory" near the primary school. It was founded in 1921 and moved several times until it finally found a home in this building, which I am sure our older generation still remembers as a school.

Although the premises are small, we try to make the service and range of books as good as possible. We are a non-professional library and our founder is theMunicipality of Ratiboř.
